Can't install Google Chrome on Linux Mint 12 RC 64 bits

Postby sauronnikko on Sun Nov 13, 2011 12:31 pm

Hi. I'm using Linux Mint 12 RC 64 bits. I downloaded the latest Google Chrome 64 bit .deb package (For Debian/Ubuntu). When I try to run it, the following error message appears:

Could not open 'google-chrome-stable-current-amd64.deb' The package might be corrupted or you are not allowed to open the file. Check the permissions of the file


Can you help me? Thanks!

Its because Ubuntu is lacking dependencies in order to run it. Download and install Chromium from the Software Manager. Then after that, remove Chromium and install Chrome. Then it should work. It did for me.

When you use dpkg the error messages are very clear that libcurl3 and libnss3-1d need to be installed, and as such the following is what you need:
sudo aptitude install libcurl3 libnss3-1d

My question is, since the package manager knows what is needed and the packages are in the repository, why can the package not be installed? Is this a bug in the package? In Mint 12?

I use SRWare Iron instead of Google Chrome and have had no problems installing the .deb file.

I usually go to http://ubuntuupdates.org and install the Chrome PPA. Hope it helps.
